Our 400th Flagger

Australian Cricket Tours - Kevin Hawking Our 400th Flagger With Brad Haddin Australia's 400th Test Cricketer

To acknowledge the support and trust people put in our tour group formerly known as 'Waving The Flag', we inaugurated 'The Flaggy Green' on the Australian Cricket Tour of South Africa 2006, awarding a touring number with very cap presented. Over the years, we welcomed 650 Flaggers before we lowered 'The Flag' after Australia Cricket Tour Of Sri Lanka 2016.

It was very fitting that in Jamaica 2008 when Brad Haddin was awarded his Baggy Green as Australia's 400th Test Player, that we awarded Kevin Hawking his Flaggy Green as our 400th Flagger. Kevin was the inspiration for my travelling to Barbados for the Australian Cricket Tour of the West Indies 1995, so I was extremely proud to know Kev was our 400th Flagger. Kevin thought it would be great to have his photo taken with Brad so after the Barbados Test, I went to the Australian dressing room to ask Brad if he would oblige Kevin his wish, and they do make a nice couple!!
